Arbory & Rushen Commissioners

Draft Dog Bylaws – Consultation

Arbory and Rushen Dog Control Byelaws Maps

Arbory and Rushen Parish Commissioners are seeking views on their proposed Dog Control Byelaws. The draft Byelaws and associated maps can be found here and the consultation runs from 1st May to 30th June 2023.

The Byelaws seek to ensure that public space can be used safely by all users, providing areas where dogs can and cannot be taken, and require the removal of canine faeces from public space. The Commissioners are keen to hear views from parishioners and feedback can be given via the Clerk by email to clerk@arbrus.gov.im or by post to Arbory and Rushen Parish Commissioners, Lamode, Ballakillowey Road, Rushen.
